Wairarapa District Health Board, like other agencies across the state sector, publishes responses to Official Information Act requests, and supports the open disclosure of information to assist the public’s understanding of how we are delivering publicly-funded healthcare. This includes the proactive publication of anonymised Official Information Act responses on our website after requestors have received their response from us and only where there is no risk to the privacy of individuals.

When we write to requestors we explain whether we intend to make the information publicly available. Requestors names and addresses are removed before publication. If any other information has been has redacted, it is to protect the privacy of the requestor.

The Wairarapa DHB publishing OIA Response Guideline is available here. It outlines how we will action the availability of official information through the publishing of OIA responses online.  

Please note that the three DHBs (Wairarapa, Capital and Coast and Hutt Valley) Mental Health, Addictions and Intellectual Disability Service (MHAIDS) OIAs are not included below. Before making a request under the Official Information Act, check to see whether the information you are interested in is already publicly available on the MHAIDS website.

If the information requested cannot be made available without substantial collation, under section 18(f) and section 18A(1)(a) of the Official Information Act 1982 we may refuse the request or fix a charge under section 15. If the request falls into this category we will inform you as soon as possible.
